Hi Dennis,

Being a "specialty item", this is a good topic to do a search of the archives, where it has been discussed form time to time.

I have never used one (or any gun stock type support) so can't comment on it. I have run into some shooters in the field that do use gun stocks and enthusiastically advocate them.

I've seen varying reports here about using a monopod on safari. It seems that it works in some vehicles and not others, depending on the layout and maybe other issues. A search on this forum on "safari" should turn up some of those discussions. If not, it may be helpful to expand the search to the Wildlife forum and maybe a cross-site search.
